That bright little paper, the. Tail

shape. Private advices from Tucson
state thai the respectable people of
the town hive become disgusted
with the venal and mendacious
course of "p. h." and are giving their
support and patronage to the honest
manly and outspoken journal con

Asd now what will happen? It
turns out that Cleveland's sisteis who
manage the social and domestic af
fairs of the White House are solid
Republican and have not abated nn
iota of their faith since Cleveland's
election and their installation as the
fij-vi- ladies of the land. Is this
--treason to the king?"
Under pressure of papular senti
ment the two Tucson papers, the
Star and Citizen, that have so bitter
ly and jealously attacted the busi
ness interests of Phoenix and the
Salt River valley have turnvd their
attention to their own business and
b;gin to talk about building a road
to Calabasas, for a change.
San Francisco tendered the Pa
cific Coast's first prima donna, Emma
Nevada, such an ovation as few
mortals ever receive, on her appear
ance at the'Grand Opera House in
that city on last Monday evening in
her favorite, "La Somnambula." The
daily papers of Tuesday are loaded
down with pen pictures of nn almost
indescribable scene.
The protended title which Reavis
jttllsS&x. Jand is worth less than the
paper it Is written on. It gives no
right to water, and land without
water in tns country is worthless.
He reserves the water right for a
future "cinch" should the grant ever
be confirmed, and he succeed in the
contest for possession which is sure
to come with several other claim
ant .
Florence has the right kind of
stud. The people of that valley
propose to invite the land swindler
Reavis to pack his grip sack and
"git" the next time he visits that
valley. He ought to be driven out
of tveiy decent community, and
the time will come, right quickly,
when simtlur action will be taken
in other places than Florence. He
has swindled this valley in a good
round sum, and after all, ;he title to
the lands he has sold is worth
m.rely nothing.
Democratic doctrine sadly misman
aged by the Democratic party. It
appoints both Republicans and De
mocrats to office, a doctrine where at
both parties hold up their hands in
holy honor. Why all this? There
is a new party at the helm. Call it
what we may, paint it white, or
black, or red there is a new house
under the paint whatever the color
'1 he chief executive of this nation,
at the head of thianew party seems
to be just the man for such a place,
for such emergency. He seems to
know what he know and proposes
that lie will not be the tall of the
dog to be wagged at will. He pro
poses to be dcgihimself and the De
mocratic and Republican parties
must be the tail or he will have no
tail. .Now among these two old
parties he has a vast number of ad
mirers who are ready to drop the
old party habilaments as having
served their lime aud to put on the
new drtss as most conductive to the
longevity and health of the nation.
The new party has its haste and followers.
If au editor omits anything, he is
lazy. If he speaks of things as they
are, people are mad. If he smooths
down the rough points, he is bribed.
If he calls things by their proper
names he is unfit for the position of
an editor. Jf he does not furnish
his readers with jokes, he is a mullet
If he does, lie is a raltlehead lack
ing stability. If he condemns the
wrong, he is a good fellow but lacks
discretion. If he lets wrong and
injuries go unmentioned, he is a
coward. If he indulges in personal
ities he Ts a blackguard. If he docs
not his paper is dull ami insipid.
Is it not about lime for the old
Democratic and Republican parties
to tumble to the iact that e new par
ty has control of the government?
To be sure it took the reins of office
under the name of the Democratic
party and would never have got
these but for the socalled portion of
the Republican parly. But the men
who now are at the head of govern
ment affaiis are neither Democrat
nor Republican as those terms have
been known in a party sense for the
past forty years. Old things have
become new, before they knew it.
The party now in power is not a re
juvenated Democratic party. It holds
to-day. as represented by Cleveland,
Phelps and Manning to no single
doctrine of ancient Democracy. It
insists on the civil service method of
doing things, a Republican doctrine
sadly neglected by the Republican
party. It sits down on free trnde. a
It is entirely iu harmony with the
past course of trie Star to see it now
posing as the champion of pue, un
adnKurated and straight laced Dem
ocracy. It must be a source of
infinite amusement to the unteiriflcd
of Arizona when they look back
over the consisteulCOcareer of Hugh
es. Four years ago, when our towns
man Ivy H Cox was on the Demo
cratic ticket for Supt. ot Public In
struction, the Star bolted the nomi
nation aud placed at the head of its
columns the name of M. 11. Sher
man, the Republican nominee- Two
years ago when Judge Porter made
the race against Oury, the Star of
fered, for a consideration, to support
the former and throw Oury over
board. These are samples of Hughes'
Democracy. His paper has been re
pudiated by the leadeis ef the party

-rrr-ST'jrUis '-nn
out a political friend to support him
or a political principle to animate
him. He is an Ishmaelite, with his
hand against every honest man.
Sordid, mercenary, vaccilating un
principled and unreliable, his course
is more an subject tor pity than crit
icism. Coin is the only aim and
gain the only god that he worships.
And this is the man who assumes
to speak for the Democracy of Ari
zona! We say assumes, for we know
that his barking has about as much
effect as that of a dog baying the
moon. Poor Hughes! His Star
which for some time past has twink
led dimly, is about to touch the hor
izon. When it shall set forever, the
Democratic party will be relieved
of an incumbus they have long tried
to shake off. Every honest and le
gitimate enterprise in southern Ari
zona will be the gainer, and" decent
and honorable journalism can well
exclaim, for this relief,much thanks.

The Tailing is decidedly oft in
its article on the Maricopa railroad
bill, and its article; is the evidence
that the matter has been misrepre

business man in the valley, asking
that the railroad bill be mado a law
In the shape in which it became a
law, and without the clause requir

they fall to issue the bonds, and the
article of the Tailings shows the lie
on the face of it, when after making
such a statement there is added that
a commission is provided for to

require common sense to perceive
the incongruity and inconsistency

the people of the Territory up to
that standard of intelligence where
they can understand his wonderful

I his examination of the "land robbery

He says the lands mhi be withdrawn

Now does anyone suppose that
Secretary Lamar, a new man in the
offiee, with a thousand new mattus
pressing upon bis time and attention
every day, suppose that he is going
to investigate and decide so impor
tant a matter within two weeks
unless be does upon the shameless
showing of Royal A.Johnson, a man
who is supposed to be here to pro

shown himself by his talk aud ac

are atteptine to defraud the Govern

uses to further his own selfish filchs

TfK Men Cleveland Nemi-
nates. Embarrassing
jr Higglns.
From our Special Correspondent.
Washington, March 26, 1885.
Editor Herald : The new broom
does not sweep rapidly enough for
the throng of office seeking patriots
who raided Washington about three
weeks ago. Disappointed spoilsmen
shake the dust of the city from their
weary feet, and sadly turn their de
jected noses toward their distant
hcihes. The discomfiture of the place
hunters gives some relief to the Cab
inet officers who have been under
hot seige since the fourth of March.
Even the Postmaster-General has
had a perceptible respite from call
ers during the past few days. The
applications for postmasterships do
not, however, fall off. They rather
increase. In the office of the clerk
to the first Assistant Postmaster Gen
eral, with an extra detail of assist
ants, it is difficult to keep up with
the work of briefing and filing ap
plications. President Cleveland evidently likes
for office the quiet men who have
kep comparatively in the back
ground. Those who have advertised
their merits with delegations have
been left out every time. The last
list of nominations sent to the Senate
created more surprise and more dis
appointment than any appointments
j'et made. The names which had
figured on the slates were all absent
from the list. This fact has opera
ted very discouiagiugly upon those
who have been devoting every day
and hour to their claims.
Amonthemost important uomiua
lions were Mi . Hay, of Pittsburg to
be First Assistant Postmaster Gener
al. Mr- Montgomery, of Michigan,
to bo Commissioner of Patents, and
Ex-Representative Durham, of Ken
tucky, for First C'omptroll er of the
Currency. The defeat of Phil
Thompson for Commissioner of In
ternal Revenue, by Mr. Miller, cf
W, Va., was a surprise to many and
a real shuck to his friends, v ho had
strenuously uiged him for the place.
They say they will not suggest his
tame for any other place now since
his ability and claims are not appre
ciated by the new powers.

clu.mcd that the Commissionership
hud been offered to himself by both
the President and Secretary La
mar. Through the dilatoriness of
he patent examiners the work o
he office is shamefully in arrears,
and Mr. Dyrenforth itcently began
reform by requiring night work in
the offices that are behind with the
business of the Department. This
will now be kept up until the work
is brought up to date, which, from
the present energy displayed, wil
be in about three months. This
fact will be gratifying to inventors
whose patience has been severely
tritd by the delays in the issuance
of their patents.
Wednesday of last week was Presi
dent Cleveland's forty-eighth birth
day, and he varied his daily pro
gramme by taking a two hours drive
with Col. Lauiout, behind a pair of
ex-Presi dent Arthur's horses. The
retiring President kept ten horses of
his own at the Executive stables, all
of which he- left for the use ot Mr.
Cleveland until the latter should
make other provision. Mr. Arthur
has called socially on President
Cleveland duricg the w eek and at
tended his official reception. Since
his retirement from effice he has
been the guest of ex-Secretary Frey
linghuysen, and a recipient of con
stant attention from society people
without regard to party. President
Cleveland will giv6 an entertain
ment in his honor next week. Sec
retary Whitney has begun an inves
tigation of the accounts of the Xavy
Department, and Secretary Endicott
proposes to turn things over in the
War Department. He has requested

The Higgtns appointment has
proved to be very embarassing to
the administration. Besides die
odoious scandals that hcccmpanied
his appointment, one charge is that
he stuffed the ballot box in the may

that he imported voters into Hamard

i he is actively engaged us a lobbyist

Cheaper Postage.
The following reductions in post-,

July 1st: Letters weighing an
ounce may be fent for two cents,
the rate now applied to halfrounce

Following is a digest of the Insol
vent Act, now lu effect in Arizona:
Every insolvent debtor may, upon
compliance with the provisions of
this Act, be, discharged from his

It provides for a meeting of ere
ditors to prove their debts and the
cnoosing ef one or more assignees.
It provides for involuntary insol
vencyon the petition of three or
more creditors, residents of the Ter
ritory; but it must appear that such
insolvent is about to depart from
the Territorv with intent to defraud,
or being absent, remains away with
such intent. It provides against
preferred creditors, all to share alike
pro rata. In voluntary insolvency,
but one assignee is provided for.
A oartner in business, can throw
his concern into Insolvency. When
copartners become insolvent, a dis
charge is prohibited ; in individual
or copartnership cases, it is other
wise. It is very stringent against
fraudulent preferences and transfers.
Tree naming.
The Rural Californi&n has the fol
lowing under the above heading:
On receipt of trees unpack at once,
and heel them in separately, covering
the roots carefully. Before planting
cut off all bruised roots with a sharp
knife and spread out the roots in a
natural shape in the hole with the
hand while the fine, top soil is care
fully shoveled in by auother. If
trees are plauted in the early spring 1 pHQENIX
(as they should always be), they
should be planted about the same
depth as they stood in .the nursery;
for the rains will cause them to set
tle an inch or more. After the trees
are set cut all the current session's
growth to three or four buds, and it
is best to shade the trunk by placing
a shade on (no west side . 1'Jant

the distance the plants are apart in

ber of feet iu nn acre (53,500), wil
